Santiago Calatrava a great inspiration!!
One of my favorite architects an also one of my inspirations to get into the world of architecture is Santiago Calatrava I find his work very propositve. I like the way he design buildings that look somehow organic but at the same time you can see the engineering applied to his structures . I started a research on some of his works trying to find the relationships between the different components that interveined in his structures , here are some images of this quick excercise.
The objective of the research was to develop a parametric system wich creates structures similar to the ones you can fin in Calatravas work , after looking to some of his works I generated a parametric system using Rhino Grasshopper which in fact works in a simple wall all the structure is generated from a set of splines previously designed , then systems workout all the structure, Its very amazing the variability you can achieve using this tools. All models above were generated in just a couple of hours which is great which allows the designer inves more time in the conceptualization of an idea rather to spend it in modeling and other aspects of the production.
